This is my first trip report, so bare with me.

My Mom and I got to the park at 8:00. I heard enthusiasts talk about coasters and stuff. Ric Turner said X might open on the 24th. They should know by the end of the week.

At about 9:00 we boarded Superman, I sat in the third row, on the left end. You should be able to see me. We rode for about seven times without getting up. (That's the way to ride it!) Paul Ruben was sitting in the front giving commentary. I swore I saw all those people before. (Ha, I saw them on TV before, that's why). I think the show is supposed to be about the history of Roller Coasters.

After we where done and the park was opening. We went over to Ninja, but it was closed. :( We then went down the hill wondering what was opened. A worker asked us if we were lost or looked for something that was opened. She told us Goldrusher was opened, so we did that. We were THE first people on it that day. That ride is slow when there's only two people on it!

After Goldrusher, I decided to ride Goliath. I sat in the very back and on the second drop I decided to close my eyes. Dude! The mid-course brakes toke me by surprise. (Ouch!) During that helix, I could not sit up at all. I love that ride! I'm not sure if I would close my eyes on that again.

After Goliath we went on Colossus. That was probably the bumpiest I ever felt it! The bumpiest part is the brake run.

After that I went home.

Willthethrill, the point of the post is to tell us all what his trip was like! This is the TR forum, and he posted a TR, that was the point.

I'm stupid, who is Paul Ruben? I am thinking he is the guy who was on Mad About You, but I'm not sure.

The editor of Park World magizine. He's on a lot of coaster shows. He has been on every coaster.

Paul Ruben has everybody's dream job. He is PAYED to go and ride all the new coasters. And while I wouldn't quite say he's been on every coaster, he's probably been on more than anybody else alive.

One of the perks of being an ACE member is you get to be in Coaster Shows.
